If your post doesn't encourage divers to run up the white flag as to the process, then I can't read.

"Many of the other groups are highly organized. They have lawyers,lobbyists, and professionals staging their platforms and fighting for their special interests.

Divers have C-cards, internet shopping, and sometimes their local dive store. We can't compete."

As for participating without being in the meetings, public comments can be sent in your place and included in the public record. That's generally in every release put out. Again, the idea is to participate, talk to the stakeholders, tell them what you think. That's how you'll make a difference. You can't be shut out a process unless you make an effort to get in it.
